Today, I'm thankful for Black Friday and all the "deals" there are in each of the adds. Those deals make Costco such a wonderful place to shop on black Friday. The store is quiet with relatively few people in it. No one is freaking out over some game system that they've been camped out for. No one is rushing for the latest tickle-me-Elmo type toy. Just nice and quiet...oh, and a free cookbook!
